2013 Galante Vineyards Blackjack Pasture Cabernet Sauvignon
Bold, chewy and satisfying are adjectives that come to mind with this single vineyards select 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. No doubt that 100% Cab is among my top favorite varietals, and this 2013 Galante Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon from the Blackjack Pasture is a fine example of a California classic. Potpourri bouquet of dried cherries, chocolate, Italian herb and prime rib blend evenly introduce swollen and balanced tannins throughout. The predominant black cherry flavors are joined by hints of tar and dried herb. This wine would be a good friend to the biggest, mouth-watering piece of beef that you can find. The worst part? Only having one bottle. Drink for 12+ years!
